The Knox College Choir, directed by Dr. Laura Lane, will be tackling songs in English, Greek, Italian and Latin during their fall performance this Sunday. Soloists during the show include seniors Mike Oelkers, Devan Cameron, Margaret Wehr, Jen Milius and sophomore Kathy Groat. The piano accompanist is Amber Clark.
The choir has practiced three times a week since the first week of school to prepare. The performance will take place at 2 p.m. in Kresge Recital Hall and is free for all in attendance. The songs are a “good mix of styles and pieces,” said sophomore Victoria Ezell.
